to be much warmer today, but with the wind...well let's just say we can't turn off the heat yet. But I understand spring is on the way, after another threat of snow next week...what the heck is going on? Anyway, pictured are our new models which were picked up by Sara yesterday. Top left is SamSarah's "The Flock". I used everything that was called for, even the buttons, which initially I thought I wouldn't. But after finishing it and standing back to look at it I just felt it needed the funkiness of the buttons. The upper right is Lizzie Kate's Christmas mystery sampler, Holly & Hearts. I did add a couple of beads just to give it a little dimension but other than that...it's also done as called for. I'm thrilled with both frames so this was a win win for me. The last one is a Shepherd's Bush piece I finished years ago and has been in the framer pile and under stacks in my stitching room. Each time I went to the framer I forgot it so when I went through the room before going to the framer two weeks ago I saw the paper that covers the matting sitting on a chair and took it with me...finally it's up. I love my Shepherd's Bush! Anyway, I do have to apologize to my stitch group. I came to work on Friday and Sara was cleaning up the store (which is odd) so I said, "What happened and why is everything out of place?" And she said, "Mom, you missed Stitch 'n Bitch on Tuesday." (We have to move displays to place tables for Stitch 'n Bitch). I thought it was this coming Tuesday so I was all prepared to attend then. I was going to work in the office and then go to Stitch 'n Bitch. Oops! This is the 2nd one in a row I've missed (the first was due to pain in my legs and back). Ladies I promise I'll be there in April....really sorry I didn't make it. Thank God Judy texted Sara or she wouldn't have been here either as I usually am the one who reminds her. Poor Jennifer came with the shingles (ouch) because she was bringing the treats...now that's dedication. Anyway, Sara said it went well even though I wasn't there, so kudos to all.
